The singers advertising Tuskegee
Institute appeared at Zion last Thurs
day night and rendered a magnificent
programme. The audience was more
than delighted, as these young men
are masters in the art of singing and
entertaining. Several concerts in the
leading white churches will do much
to make Tuskegee better known in
this section.
Mrs. F. Branton Tule, who spent
fifteen years in South Africa as a
missionary worker, gave a splendid
message at our evening service last
Sunday. Her story of wonderful ex
periences in that land are interesting
and touching and cannot fail to move
an audience with warmer sympathy
for the needs of our fatherland. Mrs.
Tule will be heard Sunday afternoon
at 5 o’clock, at the People's Presby
terian church.
The Bible Class work will be re--
sumed after the suspension due to
the revival meetings. The men will
meet at the usual hour on Tuesday

Shorter is in the midst of a great
revival and men and women are be
ing led to decide for Christ at almost
evlry service. Spiritual fervor and
religious enthusiasm are running
high at all the meetings. This was
epecially true of the Sunday servlces
■when Dr. Howard preached with
such telling effect that his message
will not soon be forgotten.
Hlb sermon topics tomorrow will
be as follows: 11:00 a. m., Jesus
as a Shepherd.” 3.30 p. m., Jesus
Among the Children.” 8,00 p. m„

Great Children** Masa Meeting
Sunday, 3:30 p .m., in which the pas
tors, Sunday School superintendents,
teachers and pupils of all our church
es wil|/ co-operate, will be held with
the hope of saving the children by
wholesale. The difficulty which
Christian workers experience in win
ning the grown-ups for Christ, not to
say keeping them in Christ, is forc
ing the Christian world to the con
clusion that saving the children is
not only the easiest way, but the
most effective way of saving the
world. In view of this fact, we call
upon every father and mother who
has an unsaved child to bring him to
this meeting tomorrow afternoon ana
let us help him into a better life.
In our Easter rally, the Blues, un

his better half return with her health
greatly improved.
A well arranged program is out an
nouncing a one day institute to be
held at Shorter Thursday of next
week. Being held just at the time
when the whiskey forces are seeking
to have set aside the prohibition en
actment, should give this meeting
special significance. The meeting
opens at 10 a. m.

METHODIS CHURCH SOUTH.
Broadens its Financial Policy To
ward Our Educational Institutions.
Nashville. Tenii.*—A* u result of a
conference held in tills city recently
Ibe M. E. Church South n-ill In the fu
tore maintain 11 broailcr pulley of aid
to and co-operation with the C. M. E.
church. This decision was reached In
s conference of the secretaries of the
various boards of *i>e M. E. Church
South with respect to ib? relation bo
tween the two churches and embraces
particularly Increased aid to the edu
cational. church extension and Sunday
school work of the C. M. E. church.
By order of the recent general con
ference of the M. E. Church South the
secretaries were to confer upon this
matter and report their decision to
their respective boards. Whether au
thentic or not. the opinion generally
prevailed among the leaders of the C.
M. E. church that In the future the
work which the Southern Methodist
church would do for Negro education
would be confined to Paine college, Au
gusta, Ga., alone. For more than a
quarter of a century the M. E. Church
South had maintained this school and
has also contributed to the mainte
nance of I-a lie college. Jackson. Tenn.
Dr. John M.‘ Moore, secretary of the
home mission department, was espe
cially active In pushing forward a
broader policy of larger support to the
C. M. E. church. Rather than con
tinue Its policy of conflqlng Its efforts
to nld Negro education to the support
of Paine college alone the decision
finally was made to contribute to the
support of five colleges maintained by
the C. M. E. church. According to this
decision, the M. E. Church 8outb will
continue to care for the entire budget
of expenses of Paine college and. In
addition, will make annual appropria
tions to Milas Memorial college. Bir
mingham. Ala.; I-ane college, Jackson.
Tenn.; Mississippi Industrial college.
Holly Springs: Texas college, Tyler.
Tex., and Homer college. Homer, La.
Wheu the matter was up for discus
sion the secretaries of the Methodist
Episcopal Church South asked Dr.
James A. Bruy, general secretary of
education for the C. JL E. church, for
ah expression of opluion. and he stated
to them that a broader sphere of activ
ity on the part of the white church to
ward the uplift of the Negroes In the
C. M. K. church would not at all de
tract from Paine college, bat would
rather tend to help that Institution,
making It the eeutrnl school for theolo
jry and for the higher training of teach
era. deaconesses and other social work
ers. maintaining that the disposition
to divide Its Interests In various sec
tions would make possible better fa
duties snd better work In schools that
would reach n larger number of peo
pie than could be expected to attend
the central school.
This Idea prevailed, and the several
secretaries unanimously and enthusi
astically made the broad recommends
tlon that henceforth It la to he the pol
icy of the southern Methodist church.
Attending the conference were Drs
Stonewall Anderson, secretary of edn
cation; John M. Moore, secretary of
boms missions; W. W. Pinson, tecre
taiy of foreign missions; F. H. Parker,
secretary Epwortb League; W. M. Me-
